Bannon has in the past week faced intense scrutiny for comments he made to author Michael Wolff for the book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

The New York Times reports that Bannon's departure was forced by Rebekah Mercer, a Republican megadonor whose investment in Breitbart gave her a seat on the board.

Donald Trump's former White House strategist Steve Bannon has stepped down from Breitbart News, the conservative news outlet announced on Tuesday, still roiled in controversy over incendiary remarks about the president quoted in a new book.

Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, and Corey Lewandowski, Trump's first campaign manager, are also expected to testify in the near future, according to the source. And he has lost his job as executive chairman at Breitbart News, the right-wing news site he had returned to running after leaving the White House. Jarvanka, as the married couple of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are collectively referred to in some circles, never could stand the sight of the dishevelled Mr. Bannon, much less the influence he had over Ms. Trump's father. But Bannon was marginalized in the months before his ouster over Trump's concerns that the top aide was being viewed as an Oval Office puppeteer.

Trump replied to Bannon's comments with fury, saying "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind".

On Wednesday in the same room where Trump met members of his cabinet, the president was ecstatic that TV networks had focused heavy attention on the immigration meeting.

The chief strategist had lost many allies in the West Wing after Chief of Staff John Kelly's staff shakeup and was blamed for some of the infighting that had paralyzed the White House. The controversy ensued following the release of a book that featured Bannon criticizing the president and two of his children.

But Trump left the door open when asked if the relationship was over permanently.

Bannon doesn't quit, though, and he'll be back.

Whether all the disclosures Mr. Wolff has reported are accurate or not, taken together they constitute more tasty morsels for both the conventional news media and the social media platforms Mr. Trump himself so favors.
